INFRAPRO FAQ ENG
InfraPro is able to process the acquired datasets with all the major thermal imaging cameras available. It is necessary for the camera to be radiometric to obtain reliable data. In the event that the camera is not radiometric, it is possible to produce a report that can be used to identify panels with anomalies due to Hot-spots.
All types of standard formats are fine.
Thermographic cameras have a modest resolution when compared to an RGB camera. A 640×512 pixel camera offers a frame quality which can be considered suitable for identifying, with significant detail, a silicon panel HOT-SPOT from a height of between 20 meters and 35 meters.
As the dimension increases, the pixel size tends to become too large to safely identify HOT-SPOTs with modest temperature differences. It should also be taken into account that the flight near the points of reflection between the solar panels and the sun is of particular importance in the acquisition with a drone. The solar disk is automatically removed from the orthophoto in relation to the fact that its position is not constant on the panels with the progress of the shooting. In any case, in the region of interest the acquisition is made significant by the peripheral photograms which, typically, are less defined.
The parameter used to define the quality of an acquisition is the longitudinal and transversal overlap. In other words, a frame must overlap with the previous (longitudinal overlap) by 85% and with the corresponding of the adjacent columns (transverse overlap), by 75%. In acquisitions with thermal imaging cameras these values are very high, that is 95% and 90%. The reason is the low resolution of thermal imaging cameras.
A good acquisition consists of about 600 photos for Ha. One MW is about 2 Ha.
InfraPro is distributed with a 12 month license. During the validity of the license there is no limit to the number of projects that can be processed. Updates are free during the validity period of the license. One license is active on one PC and can be removed for transfer to another.
InfraPro does not produce orthophotos. For orthophotos, Pix4Dmapper must be used. InfraPro uses the generated orthophoto and the frames used to create the anomaly report.
InfraPro can analyze and document a single frame to create a report.
